Baked Spaghetti

We are like any traditional American family. Spaghetti is a staple. It’s so quick. So easy. And, so cheap! Not to mention it stores really well so it’s also simple to make a bunch and bring it for lunch the rest of the week. It’s hard not to make it every night of the week. There would probably be a mutiny if I did that. Riley is already slightly bored of it. So, I needed to come up with something just as fantastic just a little more exciting.

Here it is! A cure for spaghetti boredom! This dish has the same great spaghetti taste with the same great kid appeal but has kicked the cheesiness factor up a notch. Quick and simple — a great weekday meal.
